Who’s the Boss? Actress Comes to True Blood

Almost twenty years after she last appeared as the wise-cracking, stylish Mona — mother to Angela and grandmother to Jonathan — on Who’s the Boss?, Katherine Helmond has been cast as a grandmother on True Blood. Helmond will guest-star in two episodes this season as Caroline Bellefleur, Andy and Portia Bellafleur’s grandmother, and, in the books anyway, great-granddaughter to Bill. We ask that she not appear in and/or be privy to any sex scenes (she might as well be our grandmother), and then submit this tidbit to Community’s Abed so he can further assess how it affects the age-old Who's the Boss? question of who, in fact, is the boss?
